[Bug 625882] Re: libdbi0: ABI breakage without package name change

In grepping the source packages, none of the affected packages actually
use the broken bits of the ABI (dbi_error_flag).

That said, its still important to provide a consistent ABI for upgrades
in case somebody has written something that does use libdbi.

I've tested building rrdtool and libdbi-drivers with the proposed
0.8.4-0ubuntu1 from the merge proposal, so far no problems and rrdtool
works fine w/ its DBI mode, libdbi-drivers passes all of its internal
test suite.
